12/1/2020 - Cardz 4 Guyz #259 Traditional Christmas - Happy Holidays

Welcome back to another week of challenge here at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week’s challenge is Traditional Christmas. To me, this just me Red/Green/White or Cream in this case. I pulled out last year’s Christmas DSP from SU and paired it with the retired stamp set called Beauty and Joy.

I added the Vanilla Lace Trim and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Christmas and voila, here is your Christmas Card. I hope you enjoy my creation today and be sure to join us at the challenge.

11/11/2020 - Make My Monday #135 Elegant Fall - Let's Celebrate You

Welcome back to another week at Make My Monday! For challenge #135, we are creating Elegant Fall card. Since moving to the Midwest, I enjoy the fall more and more, the colors, the crisp air, ah…… For today’s card, it was inspired by Buckeyes Inklings. This is a great way to use up your designer series paper to create many card with different theme, just switch up the sentiment. I used the dies with 3 different colors of paper for the leaves and put it on the dimension. I stamped a birthday related sentiment for anyone’s birthday is in fall. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did and join us at the challenge!

11/3/2020 - Cradz 4 Guyz - You're The Greatest

Welcome back to another week of challenge here at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week we are making Birthday for an Adult Guy! Lately I find myself not having a lot of time to craft but I still want to make card as it truly relaxes me so this card is perfect for that. I used Stampin’ Up Rectangle Postage Punch and selected a few designer series paper pattern that I like and then arrange to showcase the paper. The sentiment is stamped and cut out on a die. I think a true golfer (adult per say) probably understand the sentiment a little better, unless you play golf as a kiddo. To finished of the card I added a ribbon. I hope you enjoy this card today and be sure to join us at the challenge. Find a way to fit your hobby into your daily routine, even when you only have 10 min!
